Melissa Malek, LVN

Executive Director

“I began my career in senior living in 1999 as a floor nurse in an assisted living community in Kirkland, WA. I knew right away that I had found my calling. Although I’ve worked in different positions and had various job titles through the years, my passion to serve seniors remains constant.

My job has given me the opportunity to wear many different hats: I love visiting and laughing with residents every day, leading a compassionate group of individuals to serve others, and helping seniors and their families find solutions to tough issues. Sunrise empowers me to truly live out the important mission of championing quality of life for all seniors. I am thankful to do what I love every day.

In my spare time, I love to travel and spend time with my family—including my husband and two young boys. We spend a lot of weekends watching the boys play baseball. We live in Brentwood, California.”

Sunrise of Pleasanton Team Member LisaLisa Foster, BSW

Director of Sales

“I have worked as a social worker and director in the senior care industry for more than 15 years. Working with seniors is what has kept me in these roles for so long. They are a wealth of knowledge, and caring for them allows me the opportunity to enjoy their company.

Sunrise believes in me, and that is not something you can say of all companies. They invest in their team and encourage growth and independence.

Outside of work, I enjoy watching my children grow into sweet little people and volunteering in my community with my local Soroptimist group. I love working out and staying active.”
